Publisher's Summary

For the better part of a century, the left has been waging a slow, methodical battle for control of the institutions of Western civilization. During most of that time, “business” - and American Big Business, in particular - remained the last redoubt for those who believed in free people, free markets, and the criticality of private property. Over the past two decades, however, that has changed, and the left has taken its long march to the last remaining non-leftist institution.

Over the course of the last two years or so, a small handful of politicians on the right - Senators Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio, and Josh Hawley, to name three - have begun to sense that something is wrong with American business and have sought to identify the problem and offer solutions to rectify it. While the attention of high-profile politicians to the issue is welcome, to date the solutions they have proposed are inadequate, for a variety of reasons, including a failure to grasp the scope of the problem, failure to understand the mechanisms of corporate governance, and an overreliance on state-imposed, top-down solutions.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the problem and the players involved, both on the aggressive, hard-charging left and in the nascent conservative resistance. Soukup explains what the left is doing and how and why the right must be prepared and willing to fight back to save this critical aspect of American culture from becoming another, more economically powerful version of the “woke” college campus.

An Intellectual History

It is clear that this book waves the flag of right vs left politics. However, unlike many in this political genre, Woke Capital is a straightforward presentation of an evolving history. In particular it reveals a power shift following a new philosophy of money. Best of all, the book simply highlights the issues rather than offering overly ideological solutions.

A timely warning sounded but the dye has been cast

"The Dictatorship of Woke Capitol" is a well documented and thoughtful commentary regarding the serious dilemma we face and if not remedied soon will contribute to the rapid destruction of a once great nation. It is a very late hour. I fear China dollars have corrupted the hearts and minds of many corporate boards, executives and greedy Wall Street commandeers; Larry Fink please take note.

Only left of center CEOs attempt to influence politics ??

The right wing , Republicans, or what ever the nom de jour is , has always been predominant in American Business since the countries inception. The thesis of this book violates the “Sacred “ Milton Friedman rule that businesses should be able to do anything they need/want in the name of making money, including giving customers cancer. However quoting a nazi at the end was not lost on me.

Essential reading for finance sector professionals

Meticulously researched, well narrated, insightful, eye opening and downright scary.

This book pairs nicely with Woke Inc. Both books expose the social justice fraud and anti-democratic methods that have come to characterise the woke movement, particularly as they relate to business.

I highly recommend this book to finance professionals and free thinkers alike.

If these dictatorial acts that are undermining society and business are to be stopped, then they must first be comprehensively understood. This book does a great jobs of laying out the whole scam, both in terms of how it came to be and how it operates.
